“I look forward to facilitating and building upon the work that Chief Moore and the work the department has already done. I am committed to working to remain one of the best fire departments in the State. We have a great team of people in the Fire Department and throughout the City. My role is to support the organization and community. I am excited to be given the opportunity to lead the department into the future. Mason is an outstanding community that deserves the absolute best” said Chief Brumagen.

Chief Moore served as Mason’s Fire Chief since 2007 and Safety Director since 2009. “The success and reputation of Mason’s Fire Department began under the leadership of Chief Moore. Training, leadership development and supervision within the department along with moving towards a full time staffing plan are now the foundation for the future of Mason’s Fire Department. Chief Moore’s legacy for the development of leaders goes beyond the Fire Department and initiatives led by Chief Moore will continue growing leaders throughout the City organization ensuring the continuation of Mason’s premier reputation” indicated Eric Hansen. Chief Moore will remain with the City as Safety Director assisting with special projects.
Eric Hansen stated “Continuity of Mason’s Way was an important component in the selection of the next Fire Chief. Chief Brumagen is the long-term future for Mason. His leadership skills along with the cooperative attitude among the Deputy Chiefs and Firefighters/Medics is an integral component to furthering departmental initiatives and organizational objectives. I am confident Chief Brumagen will continue to further the departments reputation as a leader in the State.”
